I don't often venture of the Catfishing page but I need some help from my Crappie Fishing TFF brothers...

I have been obsessed with chasing blue cats for a good while. My youngest daughter just graduated and started working as a sonographer. We want to take a trip together to celebrate and she wants to go crappie fishing like we did when she was young. So we've decided to head to Toledo Bend for a couple days.

What I need is the name of a good guide and a good place to stay on the lake. The lake is huge and I don't even know where to start. Thanks in advance for the help brothers!

Frank Canizaro at Frank's Fishing Charters. 318 560 0772

Wife & I went out with him at the end of August. Limited out with good fish. He grew up on the lake
and a highly regarded guide.

I wouldn't mess with T Bend when Fork is only 1.5 hours from McKinney. It just CAN'T be beat!

Brian,
I have never been on Fork. Would like to drag my boat over there one day.

Chris,

I talked to Keith. He said November is not the best time of year to do a trip to TB. The fish are out in open water and the wind can be a problem. We talked it over and we are gonna wait until the spring. Seems like a good dude. Thanks again for the advice...
